  • How To Get Old Skyrim Saves Working In The Skyrim Special Edition

    By Alec Meer on November 3rd, 2016 at 11:53 am

    It has been an odyssey. My most recent Skyrim save is three years old. I cannot in good conscience pretend to recall what my motivations were the last time I played it – what quests I cared about, what guild or weapon or house I was pursuing. But, for reasons that are part bloody-mindedness and […]

  • The 50 Best RPG On PC

    By RPS on July 10th, 2015 at 5:00 pm

    An entirely objective ranking of the 50 best PC RPGs ever released. Covering the entire history of computer role-playing games is a daunting task and attempting to place the best games in such a broad genre in any kind of order is even more daunting. Thankfully, we are equal to all tasks and below, you […]

  • How To Make Skyrim A Survival Game

    By Brendan Caldwell on October 22nd, 2014 at 10:00 pm

    There are lots of survival games, but there are also lots of games which could be survival games with the right mods installed. Over the course of Survival Week we’ll highlight a few of those games and i) write a diary of our experience playing with it ii) explain how to do it yourself. You […]

  • Gold In Them Hills: Skyrim In 2014

    By Duncan Harris on January 8th, 2014 at 9:00 pm

    This is the latest in a series of articles about the art technology of games, in collaboration with the particularly handsome Dead End Thrills. An occupational risk of Christmas is that the great mead (Jaffa Cakes) hall of my in-laws’ living room will inspire me to reinstall Skyrim, post a few fancy screenshots, and sure […]

  • Build Your Own Skyrim, Part 3: Let’s Have Fun

    By Craig Pearson on March 24th, 2012 at 1:15 pm

    Previously: Part One and Two of our Skyrim modding guide. My other posts sort of circle-strafe around the crazier ideas that modders have had with Skyrim. Instead we very calmly patched a few holes, and then we respectfully accepted their help to rework the world a bit. It’s taken me a while to have the […]

  • Build Your Own Skyrim, Part 2: Remake The World

    By Craig Pearson on March 17th, 2012 at 10:56 am

    Okay, that’s a little bit dramatic, but “making cities a bit more accessible to thieves” is missing the flair that the Dovakhiin deserves, and while I won’t be moving mountains in this second Skyrim mod round-up, I will be shifting cities about a bit. This second shout of mods isn’t really about fixing things or […]

  • Build Your Own Skyrim, Part 1: Fixing The World

    By Craig Pearson on March 10th, 2012 at 9:19 am

    Skyrim might not be broken, but it is a bit cracked. There’s never been an open-world that didn’t crumble at the edges of a simulation, and Bethesda’s Nord land is detailed with a fine filigree through its stony butt. Patches will help, and Bethesda have done a lot of good work to keep the game […]

  • Skyrim: I Want More Pretties

    By Jim Rossignol on November 16th, 2011 at 8:37 pm

    If you’ve been looking at your own version of Skyrim, and then seeing the images that likes of DeadEndThrills have been putting out (pinched one from there for the image above, sorry Duncan!) you might be forgiven for wondering how you can push the game beyond its prescribed options. There are ways.

  • Getting Skyrim Skytrim

    By Craig Pearson on November 11th, 2011 at 2:00 pm

    This is why I play PC games: ini files. I dream of ripping into the guts of a game, fiddling with the insides, yanking and tying off loops of intestine. I’m a gaming pathologist. So the first thing I did in Skyrim was head to My Documents -> My Games -> Skyrim -> skyrim, to […]
